    Apologies. I agree you're right to disagree. I should have caveated my comment with something extra about any and all product or pricing suggestions being relevant as feedback to Evernote. They may - or may not - act on them, but users have to get their points across in order for them to be considered. Also agreed - no silencing or belittling intended. My main reason for posting was to (hopefully) take some pressure off a new forum member (if he exists)... the general tone of the post was whimsical, since that's my natural style.

    I think ‘relevance’ is very subjective and while I agree that it is important we all do our best to stay on topic, I’m not so convinced that the initial comment of... “Just remember, you're now competing with Office 365's FREE solution. Most offices have MS Office, granting them access to a shared notes system.” ...and the replies giving examples supporting that statement related to OneNote, including... ”I have Office 365 free through an educational institution and received a ton of extra OneNote space for free upon buying an external hard drive. I've continued with Evernote because it's familiar and I have a lot of notes, but I hear that OneNote keeps improving.” ...are necessarily off-topic or not relevant. I think it could be helpful for Evernote to be reminded that they are competing with an industry giant that is offering one of the main competitors to Evernote for FREE, so in addition to their needing to be compelling reasons/features for new customers to choose Evernote, there also needs to be price points that don’t seem that far from FREE to get some of those compelling reasons/features. Just another perspective to consider. ?

    I'd be ok if it clobbered the update (not really, but sorta) if on first launch of the newly updated clipper it required you to review the settings. But silently deleting them is unacceptable.

    Hi Ed - team has been looking at the data and we are seeing too many users see this dialog multiple times a session, so we'll be adding the check box to not show the message again. We'll target our next release for this.

    I feel on the biggest missing features is native support for Markdown. Please add native Markdown to Evernote.

    Greetings. I normally use evernote on my android phone. It would be really useful to be able to insert the current date and timestamp by touching a button. It would be a good feature to be able to select default format in evernote settings, and just insert date and/or time stamp by demand (hopefully not both at the same time, one button for each). This feature should also be included in a new note using the widget (this interface for a new note is really poor, I use it to type a fast note but I usually need to write the current date or time stamp). I hope you include this feature. Regards.

    A thing that's been bothering me in this great service ever since I started using it 2 years ago, is that it is not possible to set a sorting order for a specific notebook. To me this seems very basic, so I was very disappointed that it's still not available in the new beta. I mean, am I the only one who wants my receipts ordered by date and my recipes ordered by title? My family photos ordered by date and my art photos ordered by title? I do sincerely hope this can be implemented!! Once again, thanks for the great software.

    Hey guys, I would like to use saved searches as a link in a note. So I can click on the search-link in that note and get the results. Because I want to share this note and also these searches with another person, the quick access (favorites) and the saved searches in my own search field are not helpful. Example: I create a note "OVERVIEW". In that note I want to show a clickable saved seach (notebook:"home" tag:"invoice" tag:"paid"). With another person I'm sharing the notebook:"home". This person now should see the also shared note "OVERVIEW" and can click at the saved search "Paid Invoices Home" (notebook:"home" tag:"invoice" tag:"paid") and get all the paid invoices from notebook home. How is that possible? Or how can I solve this problem instead? Hope you understand my question... looking forward to your ideas.

    Yes, there must be storage for the comparison; also for the hint. I'm trusting an encryption of the password is stored or some hash/checksum; I'm still searching for a reference to this. The comparison should be stored-encrypted-password to entered-encrypted-password

    Thanks. I was hoping not to come off contrary or irritating - as your help/guidance here on the forums is golden ! And I do hope that if Antone exists, they are not so offended that they cannot come back and clarify. Occasionally somebody is misread for a shill, bot or advertiser on a forum or comment thread and then returns to show otherwise. I don't see any personal attacks that would discourage that.

    Respectfully disagree. If anyone at EN reads this discussion, then they are getting input. There are valid points to be made about announced marketing moves, especially ones declared to be in flux, and especially when they declare: And with our feedback, as certain considerations are repeated or reinforced by various then they will naturally have more weight and value than than the passive silent stance you suggest we users should assume. OK, you contend that we users have no place in the decision process. Is this because user/public reactions have NEVER had any effect on corporate decisions? Or that EN in particular has a history of fully ignoring user feedback more than most and that will never change? Better to offer dialogue and input and if they weigh little or not at all in decisions than so be it. They might serve in the process, and at least we spoke up. Again, accessibility to EN as a service and their long-term viability as a business are important to many of us. If you truly feel that all comment on this key aspect of Evernote as a service is completely pointless, then...well, silence is an option we each have open to us without the need to belittle nor silence others. In that vein, I don't think that reducing all discussion here to common categories of (the all too typical- agreed!) poor reading comprehension questions is accurate nor terribly generous to those of us who might have something to say. cheers

    Sometimes this forum does have an Orwellian feel or as if one is being gaslighted. Up is down. Black is white. Poor customer service is great.

    Reading this one, I immediately thought "shill!" I checked the user profile and they had just signed up right before posting this one post. Draw your own conclusions, but as reviews go, this would have been flagged for fake by any algorithm.

    @Antoine Dozier: Would you be able to elaborate on how this provides “loyal Evernote users a sense of worth for their hard work and dedication to the brand”? i read this my first time through and it didn’t make sense to me and I was just starting to scan the replies again, so thought I would ask in case I’m completely missing a perspective to this. Thanks! (p.s. My apologies if someone else has already asked this question. I wasn’t sure how to tell without looking through all the replies, which I wasn’t prepared to do. If there is a quick way I can tell if someone has already replied and jump to that reply, I’m all ears! I realize this Forum Use question is ‘Off Topic’, but I thought I’d risk it and still ask. ? If you have suggestions, you can DM me.)

    This is still losing data on note merges. Set your sync settings to "Enable on demand sync." Set "purge note content" to whatever number of days you want. Go to another device (iOS, Web, Mac, another Windows PC) and upload 4 notes, all with 1MB or more attachment. Sync this PC Highlight all 4 notes by selecting note 1, and shift-click-note 4 and merge. Evernote will note ensure the note content is downloaded before merging, so it will only get the content of the first note merged and maybe the last one, but not the ones in the middle. So you will only get note 2 and 3 titles, but the content is lost in the trash. This can easily happen on just one PC if you are working on a project over a period of time, say taxes, or whatever, and at the end, you want to merge them all into a single finished note. If any of those got purged via step 2 above, you'll lose data. A merge should FORCE all notes to be downloaded first, or at least refuse to merge if there are any unsync'd notes in the merge selection.

    On a Mac word documents have an inline display option, similar to PDFs. A high % of my notes include word documents. As you posted, a Table is the easiest method to insert a layout into a note. I like the way it controls the image size, and text can be wrapped around a picture.

    Discussions of topicality are usually themselves on-topic, based on my experience with Internet forums and newsgroups. Sort of goes hand-in-hand with this forum's Code of Conduct rule, which enjoins us to "not interrupt someone else’s thread in an attempt to change the topic or request support for a different issue. If you have a different issue, find the appropriate thread or create a new one for the issue you’re encountering." Sometimes folks need to be reminded to stay on topic (and I include myself), and to continue issues that don't relate to the current one to an appropriate location elsewhere. Note that I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with anyone here, just trying to point out the ground rules as I understand them ( @ShaneD -- dunno if this is something to clarify in the CoC, BTW). It is true (and well-known) that there are alternatives to Evernote out there; just remember that there's a limit to how detailed discussions on the Evernote forums are allowed to get with respect to using/operating those alternatives -- we were cautioned about this in the very long Subscription Price Increase topic awhile back. Not that that's happened here, in my opinion, and not that I'd be the one to make that call anyways. Short form: we all can be "relevance judges" (in the sense of posting opinions on topicality), if we choose to be...

    Who made you the Relevance Judge? It's quite pertinent; another member was talking about an alternative to Evernote for people who don't want to pay for a Premium account now that the Plus level is being eliminated.

    I'm on a Plus subscription. If the only choices available to me were Basic (free) and Premium, I would have stayed with Basic and adjusted my workflow accordingly. Even on Plus, I am paying for features I don't use, so jumping up to Premium is not appealing to me.
  28. 1 point
    @Shane D.: I have to say, reading your announcement strictly at face value and not attempting to read between the lines, I find it hard to reconcile. While ‘Plus’ may have proven to be less popular than you *thought* it would be, there are still some number of people who chose Plus for a reason. You have determined, because it is less popular than you thought it would be, that a better solution is needed to meet customers’ needs and gathering feedback will help determine what those needs are. That sounds fine. By gathering customer feedback, you will be able to also determine if any of your assumptions are incorrect, and customer feedback should always be of value to a company. However, the part where things fall apart for me is when you say you are discontinuing adding new Plus accounts. You are doing this *before* you gather customer feedback. Since the Plus level hasn’t been as popular as you thought, I don’t understand the risk of continuing to offer it during the time you gather feedback. And by doing so, you would be continuing to give options to new customers. You could include some kind of communication and questionnaire letting new Plus customers know your current thinking and solicit their feedback. After reading almost all of the other members’ replies in this thread, those who currently have Plus chose it for a reason and would not have wanted to only have had Basic and Premium as choices. I guess the bottom line is this... It doesn’t seem you would receive that many new Plus customers during the time it takes for you to gather feedback, especially if it isn’t that popular, but by eliminating the option for new users, it seems you are not taking your future customers’ needs into consideration at all. In addition, making a decision before gathering customer feedback is contrary to meeting your customer needs and putting your customers first. And to what real benefit? Just my few cents...

    Any chance we can get more detail on this? Lots of users are hanging back on some of the newer releases because of all the bugs created in recent months. Knowing that some of these have been fixed would give some of us enough confidence to take the leap to this release.

    I wish I could pay only for the features I am using, but not for "all inclusive".
  31. 1 point
    What was the problem to figure that out BEFORE they turned off Plus plan as a choice? I wanted to downgrade from Premium to Plus this summer because I don't need most of the features. I have tried Premium for two years and decided that it is not what I want. Now I have to pay 70$ for increased space, multiple devices, smart search and search in the images. It is too expensive for that set of features. Great.

    A lot of people have mentioned OneNote as a competitor. I love the way notes are organised visually in OneNote, in tabbed sections. But I found it couldn't handle the quantity of notes I had and would fail to sync. (I had about 2000 notes at that point which I honestly don't think is that much). I lost whole sections that way and had to rescan into Evernote. Plus scanning directly into One Note produced a very rough looking image whereas scanning into Evernote produces a nice clear pdf. In my experience Evernote just works whereas OneNote just didn't. Yet Evernote is still vulnerable to One Note because it's free and ubiquitous. Most people who haven't had my negative experience with OneNote would need a pretty compelling reason to pay anything for a similar product so I think any first tier paid product from Evernote needs to be reasonably priced (like Plus).

    I started with OneNote in 2008 which at the time didn't sync across computers. I figured out how to utilize Mesh Sync (eventually became OneDrive) to sync my notebooks across PCs but often had issues with corruption of Notebooks. Then I found Evernote a month or so later. I still use OneNote as it is required for my job, but personally, I rely on Evernote. There are a lot of ways Evernote could improve to match what OneNote does, but to me, the biggest differentiators which make Evernote stand out is being able to tag notes, the search being FAR SUPERIOR to OneNote and the screen layout which is similar to how I layout Outlook. I cannot emphasize enough how easy it is to find things in Evernote compared to OneNote. Microsoft will always dominate the enterprise space because business runs on Windows and Office. However, there will always be room for niche products like Evernote that provide particular value or features that Microsoft cannot, particularly in small to mid-size business market, as well as some pockets in the enterprise. As long as Evernote stays a step ahead or has a few must-have features that OneNote doesn't, people will pay for that and they can stay relevant. If they sit back, relax and don't keep up, they will become the next Novell or Lotus Notes.

    For your information, I have posted in forums and voted for the feature. This original post includes the statement "We believe gathering customer feedback will help determine what those needs are." I was simply providing my Premium customer feedback to help identify a need since they asked. Thank you for your constant monitoring and interest in the forum.

    This works for me: In Wikipedia, open preferences -> Appearance -> Math And select PNG Images. When it is set to MathML with SVG or PNG fallback, my clipped pages have lots of missing pictures. When it is set to PNG images, my clipped pages look just like Wikipedia.

    You know what I'd like to see for all new features? the thread that had at least 10 upvotes from users requesting said new feature. How much time was spent on this new Notebook view? How many users requested it? Could that time have been used to fix the mess that Tag View is? Could that time have been used to add a format painter? Would my version report total note count in the side bar had Notebook View not been added? Could that time have been used to fix the note toolbar that keeps deleting preferences? Could that time have been used to reduce the freeze EN does in just one area? Could that time have been used to fix the bug where you are typing on the first line of the note and you are magically transported to the subject line and have to delete some text, click back in the note where you were, and resume typing? Could that time have been used to reduce the time I spend looking at a blank white-space when I open a note while Evernote does whatever it does before showing me the body of the note? I am sure the emoji engine is looking for stuff to emojify before rendering the page.... I could go on.... this is just so frustrating. This used to be my favorite product. Now I grimace every time I use it and these annoying things get in the way of me taking/making notes

    Well consider Evernote is where I usually keep notes of all types – since that's the whole point of the app – it's where I would drop code snippets and write notes about them. Doesn't really seem like a stretch to me. You can drop in full web pages, formatting and all, so why not code? I realize it isn't the primary target for Evernote, but obviously there's an interest, as evident by this thread (and many others). Besides, you're posting in a thread specifically about Evernote's "code block" feature – which they already include, albeit in a confusing, hard-to-use, and feature-incomplete manner.
